Risk Management Advisory

Risk management can be considered one of the key components for the smooth operation of a company. Investment Firms, Funds, and Crypto-Asset Services Providers (CASP) may face a wide range of risks that may negatively impact their corporate and financial development. Thus, such entities need to establish, implement, and maintain adequate risk management policies and procedures which identify the risks relating to their activities, processes and systems and, where appropriate, set the level of risk tolerated by them.

At SALVUS, we carry extensive experience in managing risk for a range of regulated entities. After all, beyond having clients every business is obliged to secure profitability, the absolute criterion. This is inseparably linked with a robust, reliable risk management function.
